More About BCRF

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $550 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world. This year BCRF has invested $58.6 million in research, to support over 235 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, including $11.6 million to the international Evelyn H.

Celebrations Blog Hop

July 2015 Blog Button-001 resizedWoohoo!  Time for another Di’s Country INKers blog hop!  This month we are focusing on Celebrations, and one of my favorites is the 4th of July!  Family gatherings, barbecues, fireworks – I love everything about the 4th!  This year we, as a nation, have an awful lot to celebrate as well.  My project today has no stamping on it whatsoever.  I know, weird, huh?

beelinestamping.com 7-1-15a Several months ago I saw an alternate project using last year’s My Paper Pumpkin ‘Pinwheel Party’ kit that I just loved, (it was done by Peanuts and Peppers Papercrafting) but I had used up all the supplies that came in mine a long time ago.  No problem!  One of the perks of being a  My Paper Pumpkin subscriber, is that I am able to purchase refills of some of the past kits. This one is still available for now, but it’s about to be retired soon.  All you need to do is subscribe not only will you get a great kit each month, but you too will have access to some seriously cool past kits.

I covered a foam wreath with some navy blue satin ribbon from my stash, and then went to town making pinwheels and hot glue-ing them onto my wreath.  It needed just a little more pizazz, so I got out my Big Shot and the Stars Framelits and made some multi-layered stars to tuck between the pinwheels using Real Red, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Night of Navy cardstock.  Some large rhinestones finished them off.

beelinestamping.com 7-1-15I wish I knew a trick for getting glittery things to photograph better, but here’s a close-up of one of the layered stars.  It’s so sparkly!  (I must be hanging out with my Granddaughter too much – I just heard that last sentence in Lil’ Agnes’ voice from the Minions… lol)

beelinestamping.com 7-1-15CAnd speaking of sparkly… My daughter gave me a great mani this morning!  My fingers and toes are all ready for this Saturday’s celebrations as well.  Thanks, Jen – Love It!!  Mwah!

Thank you so much for joining me. Hope you enjoyed todays’ project – now off you go to see what Crystal is celebrating.  And in case you just joined us, make sure you go back to see what Diana has for you.  If you get lost at any time, all our hoppers are listed below.
